1. Open Avocode desktop app or app.avocode.com and drag & drop the PSD file into any project or subfolder.

2. Once the upload and processing is done, all your team members will be notified that there is a new design (if they have enabled e-mail notifications and/or set up the Slack notifications integration).

NOTE: You can keep working in Photoshop during the upload. You can watch the upload progress on the Avocode icon in your Dock. Please don't close the Avocode app during the design upload. 

3. Now you can double-click on the design to open it in Avocode.

4. Now you can inspect the design and export assets, specs and code.

How to sync PSD files via a plugin?

While it's possible to directly import Photoshop files to Avocode (drag & drop) you can also use our plugin to sync them.

How to upload new PSD design versions?

Make sure uploaded PSD files are named exactly as they were in the previous version. If the name matches, the PSD will be added as a new version.

NOTE: You can only sync the whole PSD file. At the moment it is not possible to exclude PSD artboards from sync. If your file is over 500MB we suggest breaking it into smaller files.
